Agilent Technologies Triple Quadrupole ICP-MS Selected for R&D 100 Award

(17.07.2013)


Background:
Called the "Oscars of Innovation", the R&D 100 Awards recognize and celebrate the top 100 technology products of the year. Past winners have included sophisticated testing equipment, innovative new materials, chemistry breakthroughs, biomedical products, consumer items, and high-energy physics. The R&D 100 Awards span industry, academia, and government-sponsored research. Winners are selected by an independent judging panel and the editors of R&D Magazine.



The awarded 8800 Triple Quadrupole ICP-MS:

"The Agilent 8800 Triple Quadrupole ICP-MS is a groundbreaking innovation that redefines the possibilities of ultra-trace elemental analysis," said Philip Binns, Agilent vice president for spectroscopy products. "The 8800 ICP-QQQ has enjoyed strong adoption in its first year and has defined a new segment in elemental analysis. We are honored that our spectroscopy division has won this award for two consecutive years."

Unlike existing instruments, the Agilent 8800 is the only ICP-MS system with a tandem mass spectrometer, or MS/MS, configuration. Using a high-performance quadrupole before and after the collision/reaction cell, the 8800 precisely controls the ions in the instrument, allowing the user to resolve the most difficult interferences and obtain the highest sensitivity results of any ICP-MS.

The Agilent 8800 enables scientists and chemists to solve challenging analytical problems that have proven difficult for conventional ICP-MS systems in traditional markets such as semiconductors, environmental and food. Additionally, the 8800 offers new research capabilities providing scientists new application possibilities in fields such as life sciences.
